Yes, this is both a big step up from the situation this past week, and also a big step down from what had been possible before.

What I'm not seeing in all of the discussion is the fact that CD-quality SBD recordings can still be traded by BitTorrent, as at bt.etree.org. At the moment, there are a number of exceptionally generous people making available some great SBD recordings, and this is just the tip of the iceberg of what's possible. If you haven't been there already, check it out, download a BitTorrent client, and get started.

The BitTorrent approach requires more dedication (and HD space and bandwidth) on the part of our community, but if we work together we can still preserve broad access to the best of the vast SBD collection--without resorting to stamps and envelopes. Remember, the files are all out there on our respective drives! If we each do our part to make them available, we can more or less reconsitute the resources we once had.
